Welcome to our Wacky Crazy Thursday!
That is what we like to call this once a month event in our house! What can I say? I am not sure what it is about the day we have our 4H club meetings, but it always ends up being a full day regardless of how little or how muc hwe fit into the day!
We usually spend most of our day preparing for the meeting. The boys are always getting together what they need to present information. Then I am the project leader for three projects, so I am usually gathering information related to the information I need to gie to the club members. Tonight we made even more crazy because we prepared refreshments for the end of the meeting.
But...in spite of all this hoop-la, we have to admit we love it! We got it all together...we got information out to our club, and most of all...we had fun!
We had a great program about parlimentary procedures presented by our Vice President, Katy, and our Parlimentarian, Jonah. They taught the club how to make a motion and the different ways to vote by setting up a scenario where the club voted on how to make a trail mix and what would be included in the mix. It was a lot of fun and everyone learned the procedures! We also voted to set up a booth at the Forest Festival next week. This will include selling raffle tickets, but mostly we will be promoting 4H with crafts and information at the booth.
We decided to make our day even wackier by planning a meeting after the club meeting because our club is competing in a hushpuppy contest. Yes, this does relate to 4H because of our interest in Food & Nutrition. (More on this adventure next week!)
It was a full day but we continue to find new ways to 'make the best better.'
